Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 available today, LTE version coming next week
The 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD was announced nearly two months ago, and now finally Amazon is launching it for the juicy price of $299. The device comes with a very high-res 1920 x 1200-pixel LCD display and at 1.25 pounds is lighter than other slightly bigger 10-inch tablets.

A 4G LTE-enabled 8.9-inch Fire HD will start shipping next week on November 20th, but for that you would need to pay a much pricier $499. It’s still cheaper than a similar LTE iPad selling for $629, though.

The 8.9-inch tablet runs on a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4 processor, has 1GB of RAM and 32 gigs of internal storage.

Amazon next gen kindle Fire looked good when they are announced. But at this moment, Ti Omap 4 is not that good anymore....

The Kindle tablets are always good...a sure product if you will. it always delivers on the functions its supposed to. its the best tab for reading out there...period! Its meant to do just taht and it does it exceptionally well...the other functions are an add-on.
